MEDIA REVIEWS
"This consolidated bibliography is new to this edition; it saves space by avoiding repetition of titles and also provides a useful resource in its own right". (Reference Reviews, 2010) "Even better than before, the Dictionary is an essential tool for all human geographers and over the years has provided an invaluable guide to the changing boundaries and content of the discipline. No-one can afford to be without this fifth edition." Linda McDowell, University of Oxford "From explanations of core concepts and central debates to lucid discussions of the theories driving contemporary research, this is the best conceptual map to the creative and critical thinking that characterizes contemporary Human Geography. The fifth edition belongs on the bookshelf of all serious students." Gerard Toal, Virginia Tech "With an exceptional balance between breadth and depth, this is undoubtedly a timely and ground-breaking revision of the Dictionary. An outstanding accomplishment of the editors and contributors, and a comprehensive and essential reference for any student or scholar interested in human geography." Mei-Po Kwan, Ohio State University "I can't imagine life without it. Definitive, detailed yet accessible: there's still no single-volume reference work in the field to rival it." Noel Castree, University of Manchester Reviews of Previous Editions: "The definitions are of a particularly high standard." (Geography) "The Dictionary is the best compendium of human geography of today. It is a book to which I shall turn again and again, and can only recommend my colleagues to do likewise." (Tijdschrift voor Econ. en Soc. Geografie) "An invaluable student guide." (Endeavour) "As a student's companion it could hardly be bettered." (Times Educational Supplement) "Very highly recommended." (American Library Association) "The best single-volume reference to the field of human geography. In paper, it is quite a bargain and clearly a necessary addition to the bookshelves of students and professionals alike." (Environmental Planning) "The Dictionary remains the best single-volume reference to the field of human geography. In paper, it is quite a bargain and clearly a necessary addition to the bookshelves of students and professionals alike." (Geography) "This is easily the best dictionary of human geography in print." (Progress in Human Geography) "This dictionary is an essential companion for anyone studying human geography and it is a bargain. Buy it immediately!" (Reference Reviews) "I could quite happily spend hours reading the Dictionary of Human Geography ... It is, quite simply, an integral part of my being a geographer, and has been since my earliest undergraduate days." (John H. McKendrick, Glasgow Caledonian University, Scottish Geographical Journal)
